When sailing you should expect to get wet and regardless if you will be joining us in Sooke on the hottest day of August or the coldest day of January, there are some items that are key to bring with you to ensure that you have a comfortable sailing experience.
Clothes that can get wet.
Athletic style clothes are great, avoid cotton as it does not insulate when it gets wet - fleece, polyester or wool are great.
Bring warm clothes year-round as it can always get cold on the water, particularly when you get wet.
An extra change of clothes for after sailing so that you can get warm and dry.
Rain gear, something windproof and waterproof, it doesn’t need to be top of the line sailing gear, just something that will keep you warm and dry. We have some loaner rain gear in kids sizes.
A wetsuit if you have one, if you do not we have loaners.
Shoes that can get wet. We have water shoes we can loan out if you need them in sizes 5-12.
Life Jacket - If you do not have your own we have loaners.
Water! Please bring a reusable water bottle so that you can stay hydrated while being active.
Sunscreen, hat, sunglasses.
Lunch or a snack depending on how long your session is.
